Gearhart Golf Links

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 1892

Located just a couple of hundred yards from the seashore, Gearhart Golf Links boasts the honour of being the first properly established golf course west of the Mississippi River. Originally conceived well over 100 years ago by Scottish settlers, this well-regarded layout includes several attractive holes and features ... as well as plenty of history.

This public resort links-style course will test most facets of your game, and should provide a round with plenty of enjoyable golfing challenges. Worth visiting if you are in the area.

Did you know?

In 1891, before any formal golf courses existed west of the Mississippi River, a band of homesick Scotsmen surpriseded the resident locals by burying tin cans into the dunes and then knocking balls with sticks until they dropped into the cans. For these Scots, the landscape at Gearhart was strongly reminiscent of the ancient links courses of their homeland.

On North America's west coast, Gearhart shares the spotlight with other pioneering layouts such as Victoria Golf Club (1893), Tacoma Country & Golf Club (1894) and Del Monte Golf Club (1897).

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
